Essential Elements of Best Practice for Cochlear Implant Fitting in Children:

Considerations for Behavioral Methods of Verification and Validation


Introduction The main objective of this document is to provide clinicians with a description of essential components to consider for best practices for cochlear implant (CI) programming (fitting) in children using behavioral methods.

We believe that the objectives of fitting for audibility and comfort are best achieved through a systematic process of verification prior to validation using various outcome measurements. Following a systematic approach provides the clinician with an opportunity to cycle back to previous processes when measured outcomes are not consistent with clinical expectations. In this document we will concentrate on the verification of audibility and comfort steps in this process.
